550. The defendant, regardless of the number of employees in the defendant’s employ, may assert against the plaintiff the defendant’s own claim arising from the same source as the application or from a related source, provided the amount claimed does not exceed $15,000, or request the resolution, resiliation or annulment of the contract on which the application is founded. The defendant files the exhibits in support of the contentions of the defence with the court office within 10 days after filing the application. If the defendant’s own claim is not admissible as a small claim, the court clerk notifies a notice so informing the defendant and specifying that the defendant may, within 15 days after the notification, ask for a review of the decision by the court, which decides the matter on the face of the record.
